To provide service and learning opportunities through community projects which promote transformational and sustainable personal and community development around the world.
Description and Overview:
Service For Peace-Kenya seeks to advance programs that focus on service and learning, while also bringing together people and partners of diverse faiths, ethnicities, nationalities, generations, and cultures to address profound social needs by discovering commonality and genuine appreciation for differences – all through service. Service becomes the medium that breaks down barriers that exist and thus connecting people to peace, and promoting a global perspective.
While a voluntary service project is the central activity of SFP programs, it is the lessons that are learned from the experience that are actually the major objective. Our main goal is the “transformation” of the participants so that they develop a sense of responsibility and caring for others, confidence in their own ability to make a difference in their communities, and an ability to work together with people from different backgrounds to their own. Much of the learning is experiential but we also provide training in the areas of leadership, community development and peacemaking.
